Annex A. Science And Technology Objectives (STOs)
Army Science and Technology Master Plan (ASTMP 1997)


III.I.03. Rapid Deployment Food Service for Force Projection. By the end of FY96, demonstrate equipment components of a modular, field food service system based on advances in diesel combustion and heat transfer technologies. By the end of FY98, demonstrate integral power generation, advanced insulative materials, and non/low powered regenerative refrigeration. By the end of FY99, fully integrate these technologies for the demonstration of a highly mobile, rapidly deployable field feeding system that is more reliable (50 percent increase in MTBF), more efficient (50 percent decrease in fuel), that can be operational in minutes instead of hours, and that expands the range of tactical situations (by 40 percent) in which hot meals can be prepared and delivered.

Supports: Joint Service Food Program; Advanced Development-RJS2/63747/D610-Food Adv. Dev.; Engineering Development-RJS2/64713/D548-Military Subsistence Systems; Army Field Feeding Equipment 2000 (MNS).
